razing32Underrail did not work well on wine last time i tried.
The last time I tried it worked reasonably well with latest wine staging and all .net versions installed in the prefix. Which was better than previously.

On the topic, I'll keep an open optimistic mind regarding Atom RPG, although I have to agree, the lighting doesn't look very good. Still, hoping they improve on that and willing to overlook it if the game itself is solid.

FaalagornSupposedly, this reduced game loading time by a whooping 40 seconds, so it was yet another issue of DRM hurting game for legitimate users.
If true, holy shit. I'm not surprised, mind you, but still, holy shit.

WorMzyLooks good to me!

I do hope the battlescape isn't too restrictive like the modern XCOM games, the original system of TUs and free fire gave you much more freedom -- from destroying walls and hedges to create alternate routes, to choosing when and where to take your shots, to saving some TUs for the chance of getting reactionary shots.

I hope the geoscape is similar to the originals too.
Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

Procedural destructible environments? Designed by Gollop? And with potentially interesting factions?This is the 3d X-COM I've been waiting for. I'm properly and thoroughly hyped, ladies and gentlemen.

Wednesday Madness, a quick look at some good Linux gaming deals

I second the endorsement of the Humble Wild Frontier bundle. I adore Gods Will Be Watching and Renowned Explorers, FRONTIERS seems promising (and it does have a Linux build, although I'm not sure if it is behind and how much) and I'm sure you have already heard good things about Hard West as have I.

The inclusion of Cthulhu as a playable character is absolutely hilarious.

That is strange.

Steam now has a bunch of Anime shows you can buy, also a sale on Anime games

Yes, it's streaming only.

And well, the quality seems fine to me. Here you can check out the image quality and see the bitrates:

Btw, despite what it says the audio track is thankfully Japanese.

Admittedly, 200 kbps for audio does seem a bit low, unless it is vorbis or an equally good codec.

This is great! 91 days, Joker Game, Ace Attorney and Bungo Stray Dogs are a lot of fun.

ShmerlRegarding space. Why are they using WAV for audio? That's really wasteful.
No loss of quality, no decompression overhead, potentially reduced latency as the result.

It comes down to one's priorities of course, but I think it's a valid choice and no more of a waste than not using JPEG compression for textures for example.
